Mathematics of Planet Earth at the 19th Berlin Math Day
9 am-5:30 pm
The exhibition “Mathematics of Planet Earth” is part of the 19th Berlin Math Day.
Volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, melting glaciers: Can they be calculated? How big is the contribution of mathematical sciences to the task of mastering these current ecological problems and catastrophes that massively challenge our world? The exhibition “Mathematics of Planet Earth” gives insights into these questions.
The exhibition, which is also shown from March 27th to June 27th in the Deutsches Technikmuseum in Berlin, is part of the 19th Berliner Tag der Mathematik (Berlin Math Day) organized by the Technical University of Berlin. It has been developed jointly with IMAGINARY and the Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin. Infos about the Math Day can be found here; for detailed info about the exhibition please click here.
With the interactive film “the future of glaciers” you can explore a mathematical model of the Aletsch glacier. How will it (probably) look like in 20 years, or in 100 years?
